[Michael Aranyshev] "Sorry, what you don't see is that the contention is not about the underlying database but about the actual pieces of GUI on top of it."


Is the custom naming system interface in X. It's drag and drop for heaven's sake.. It has the ability to generate your own custom text strings as PART of the naming suite and facility for accurate sort via leading zeros.

As a "UI" I simply can't conceive of anything simpler than selecting a zillion clips or audio tracks in the event browser that have been pre-sorted via whatever metadata they were imported with (and ALL modern cameras or decks generate at least BASIC metadata that can be used for sorting things) and using the X simple simple spreadsheet format and column sort to put them in order, then setting up the name I want in this - then hitting OK (one click!) and having the system auto-rename an unlimited number of clips with numerical increments.

What you're asking for is honestly insanely simple in the X database and metadata approach.
